This package just came in today and I just can’t wait to blog about how pleased I am with my small purchase. But before I shopped online, I made sure that I’m getting some deals as my way of practicing frugal shopping. Luckily, at the time I made the purchase, e.l.f. was having a free shipping deal on orders $13 or more plus I used a coupon code CAROLINA which is a 50% off your entire purchase. Now how cool is that?! This coupon is still working and I'm not sure when its gonna expire.
I have been looking online for smaller face brushes for my forthcoming trip and I came across this Kabuki brush from elf and apparently all the reviews are positive. Apart from the great reviews, it is only $6 compared to other brands that doesn't go lower than $10. So I finally gave in then went ahead and bought the kabuki. Now this brush has just exceeded my expectations and I must say it is incredibly of great quality. The bristles are extremely soft in spite of the synthetic material being used. It is pretty dense and of course no shedding. It’s a really great alternative for your face powder brush and also the best tool for traveling. I just wish it comes with a bag or pouch for hygienic reasons in case you're carrying it in your purse.
The next item that I bought is their studio cream eyeliner in black. This one for me is quite good but not too exceptional. They claimed it to be smudge-proof and water-resistant coverage for all day wear. But neither the color was that jet black like what is shown in their video and after a few hours it fades a little bit and it smudges in the corners of my eyes dreadfully. I guess if it is used with a primer then most probably you can say it’s great for all day use. It does apply smoothly and easily which I do think that it’s a decent product given that it only costs $3.00 including a cute brush applicator.
The last two products that I purchased were the lash kits and the eyelid primer. If you don't want to spend more on fake eyelashes, the elf lashes are the way to go. They are very natural looking, it makes your lashes appear fuller and they only costs $1 each. It also comes with a lash adhesive gel and the cap has a little wand attached to it. The eyelid primer also costs $1 and it does a great job as well. It is smooth as you apply it on your eyelids, the shadows stays longer and its not too heavy on the skin. I must say it's just as great as the urban decay eyelid primer. And with the price... you can't beat that. Highly recommended definitely.
